Statement from Councilmember Daysog

Alameda community:
It has been over one week since election night Nov. 8, 2022, and I think I can now express my appreciation to the people of Alameda for allowing me to return to City Council.

Thank you, Alameda, for the trust you have placed in me, and I will make sure to work very hard in an open and fair manner on your behalf.

I want to thank all my campaign volunteers, supporters and advisors, and funding contributors, for without your assistance, I could not get to this point.

Above all, thank you Alameda voters! Even those who did not vote for me, thank you for listening.

I want to take a moment to especially thank those who endorsed my campaign, such as the East Bay Times (, local PAC ‘A Better Alameda‘ (, the Bay East Association of Realtors, former Alameda Police Chief Burny Matthews, and former Alameda School Board Member Bob Reeves, who was also my principal when I attended elementary and middle school in Alameda decades ago.

I also want to say congratulations to Tracy Jensen on her election to City Council, as well express great appreciation to Hannah Groce, Paul Beusterien, and Jim Oddie for their engaging, hard-fought, positive, and spirited runs for City Council.

I also want to express congratulations to Mayor Marilyn Ezzy-Ashcraft on her re-election, and express appreciation to Councilmember Trish Herrera-Spencer for her spirited campaign.

Thank you, Alameda!
